Good to know

  • The Under Armour Thrill 2 features a durable rubber placed strategically on its outsole for an optimal combination of traction and flexibility.
  • In its midsole, it has the full-length Micro G® foam and a die-cut EVA sock-liner, which ensure high comfortability and excellent energy return for the foot of the runners.
  • This Under Armour running shoe also has extra cushioning in the heel region for safe landing and the flex grooves in the forefoot area for smooth transitioning of foot from landing to toe-off.
  • Finally, the sufficient number and the smart location of perforations in the upper and the midfoot straps ensure both the high breathability and the needed adaptive support for the runners.

The Under Armour Thrill 2 stays true to size. It has a standard running length and is available in the standard medium widths of D and B for men and women, respectively.

The strategic placement of the durable rubber outsole effectively distributes the impact load over the whole surface area, thereby reducing the risk of injury and increasing efficiency of the shoe on various challenging grounds. Also, the material is highly resistant to abrasion and has good traction properties. This enhances the shoe’s performance on wet surfaces.

The Under Armour Thrill 2 utilizes the full-length Micro G® foam for an optimal combination of comfortability and responsiveness. The material provides excellent energy return, thereby allowing a tireless transitioning of the foot from landing to toe-off. It also efficiently manages the propulsion of the runner in the forward direction.

The full-length die-cut Ethyl Vinyl Acetate (EVA) sock-liner further enhances the cushioning of the shoe.

The midsole also uses extra cushioning in the heel area, which works together with the flex grooves in the forefoot region for a smooth transitioning of the foot from one position to another during the running session. The intelligent placement of these features adds to the shoe’s flexibility while providing an optimal level of comfort.

The Under Armour Thrill 2’s breathable mesh upper maintains a properly ventilated environment inside the shoe for a breezier running session and a fun ride.

While the upper boasts a good number of perforations, it keeps the needed structure through its midfoot straps. These straps consolidate the upper without adding extra bulk to it.

The padded tongue and collar add to the pair’s comfortability and the lace-up closure makes possible a snug fit that prevents sliding of the foot inside the shoe.
